Overview

My Life and Work by Henry Jones Ford

Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company, lays out the secret of his success in My Life and Work. Born in 1863, Ford was a machinist and engineer by trade, but made his name as an extraordinarily successful businessman who, more than any other individual, was responsible for bringing the motor car into common use in America. Many of his pioneering manufacturing and labor practices are now commonplace - the assembly line, limited working hours, a minimum wage. He was a larger-than-life character who was rarely out of the headlines. My Life and Work is part memoir, part advice manual from the man who transformed the way America worked and lived.

Great explanation of Ford's views of business, the story of how he got started in the industry, in his own words. Worth reading.

I am currently a sophomore in high school, and was assigned a research project on Henry Ford. This book was very informative and helpful. It provided me with almost all of the information I needed to  complete my assignment. In majority of the book, Henry Ford writes about how he started the Ford Motor Company, his ideas for the company, and about the cars and money he made. Even though I truly enjoyed reading this autobiography, I would have found it more interesting if Ford would have written more about his personal life. Ford doesn’t include a lot of information about his life growing up, or his family ancestry. I thought this book was very informative about his company but would have found it more interesting to read more about his personal background more. I learned so much about Henry Ford, his company, and Ford's impact on our world today. Overall I thought this book was very interesting and helpful.
